Gov't: Israel’s decision to summon ambassador ‘improper’
The National Government rejected Israel’s decision to summon the Argentine ambassador in Tel Aviv to discuss recent agreement between Argentina and Iran, saying it considered it an “improper” move that goes “against the traditional, friendly relationship” between both nations.
In a statement recently released, the Foreign Ministry reminded Israel that “no Israeli citizen was involved” in the 1994 AMIA bombing, adding that “Argentina has never summoned an Israeli ambassador in order to demand explanations for their government’s actions.”
“The Argentine Foreign Ministry expresses that the summoning of the ambassador as a result of the Argentine Republic’s sovereign decisions is an improper act and is strongly rejected, and goes against the traditional, friendly relationship between both nations,” the ministry said.
